Praise

“McKellar… may well have done more to encourage girls to stick with math than any government task force… the wildly enthusiastic response [her books] have received speaks to the effect that can be achieved by reworking the contents of standard math and science problems and countering the perception that boys won’t like girls who are smart.”—Eileen Pollack, The New York Times

“Exhorts her female readers not to fall prey to others’ low expectations, especially expectations that are based on deeply ingrained stereotypes stemming from one’s appearance… McKellar genuinely wants to change the way girls view intelligence and, more importantly, themselves… McKellar hopes to revise the girly image of dim-bulbs with a new formulation: Smart is sexy. And that’s an equation we all can understand.”—Erica Stalnecker, National Review
